CHIKARA Review: Young Lions Cup VI, Night II
The weekend of June 13th, 14th, and 15th of 2008 brings you the 6th annual CHIKARA Young Lions Cup tournament! Last night, Vin Gerard made it past six other feisty Young Lions to make his way to the finals of the tournament on night three. Tonight, the second dozen competitors look to make their mark in CHIKARA. Just like on night one, the 12 competitors will compete in singles competition and the winners will advance to a Six Man Elimination match. The winner of the elimination match advances to the Young Lions Cup finals on Night three to face Vin Gerard. Who will make it to the finals tonight?
Commentary is provided by Mitch Ryder, Louden Noxious, Bryce Remsburg, Mike Quackenbush, Ultramantis Black, and Leonard F. Chikarason.
Louden Noxious comes to introduce the participants. Senior official Bryce Remsburg comes in the ring and stops Louden. Bryce tells the crowd that Jason Blade is a weenie, and will not be in tournament competition tonight. Bryce calls for the CHIKARA hat with names in it, hoping to pick a replacement for Jason tonight. Bryce pulls a name out of the hat and it is “Matt Bourne.” Bryce runs backstage, but he is not here. Bryce pulls another name out and it is “Evan Sydal”. He is also not there. Bryce pulls out a third name, being “Christian Faith.” Christian is here, and will take Jason’s spot in the tournament.
All 12 participants are then brought out, EXCEPT Worker Ant, who mysteriously does not show up! Anywho, the other 11 participants have the ceremonious picture taken.

Lince says tonight is his night. He says it’s his second chance at the Young Lions Cup, and he is no stranger to second chances.

Young Lions Cup Qualifier
Ophidian vs. Steve “The Turtle” Weiner
Weiner cuts a promo saying how he is looking forward to his Young Lions debut and will win the Cup. He says that this is the last year he is eligible for the tournament. He points out some similarities between he and Ophidian, but he says that Turtle Power is going to explode and he will defeat Ophidian, and beat Vin Gerard on Night 3. He said the fans have wanted to see him be serious, and they will see just that. Not the worst thing ever, but I still hate Steve Weiner.
Ophidian becomes my new favorite wrestler as he attacks Steve with a knee. He chokes and kicks Steve in the corner. He takes Steve to the outside, slaps him on the chest, then sends Steve back in the ring. Ophidian kicks Steve in the chest then chokes him out on the ropes. He then wraps Steve in the ropes and applies a stretch. Ophidian takes Steve to the mat and puts on a double leg full nelson. Ophidian rolls it into a prawn hold, but only gets a two count. Ophidian hits Steve some more and rolls him up for a two. Ophidian tosses Steve into the ropes and follows. Steve moves out of the way and school boys Ophidian for the two count. Ophidian continues to beat him down, but hurts his hand on Steve’s shell. They stand up and Ophidian begins to attack but Steve feels no effect. Ophidian tries a double knee, but Steve turns around and Ophidian hits his knees against Steve’s shell! Steve takes advantage attacking Ophidian with terrible looking offense, except for the moves where Ophidian was mostly in control. Steve hits his Shellsational Slam, but only gets a two count. Steve then runs at Ophidian for a splash, but Ophidian turns it into the Ophidian Death Grip for the win! THANK GOD. This wasn’t awful, because Ophidian is so awesome. Weiner is so awful on offense, but isn’t the worst on defense. Still not so great. *
Young Lions Cup Qualifier
Chip Day vs. Worker Ant
Chip Day says he is here representing NWA Anarchy. He says the sent him there because they believe in his ability to bring the Cup home. He says he also believes in himself, and that is why he is bringing the cup home for Anarchy.
Leonard F. Chikarason is waiting to help Worker Ant down the stage, as he is limping with a crutch under one arm. Worker says to the camera “Hey Vin, a personal thank you for this, as you have given me more motivation to kill you.” They get in the ring. Leonard says that he hopes Vin can hear him, because he is sick of his antics. He says him attacking Worker Ant was out of line, and he refuses to let him cause the Colony the Young Lions Cup much like Vin cost them the King of Trios tournament. He says out of good consciousness, he can’t let Worker Ant compete tonight. But, he asks for both Soldier Ant and Fire Ant to come out. He says one, and only one of them can take Worker’s spot in the tournament. They play rock, paper, scissors, and Fire Ant wins! (Rock beat scissors, btw).
Young Lions Cup Qualifier

Young Lions Cup Qualifier
Shayne Hawke vs. Bobby Dempsey
Hawke cuts a promo saying he is going to win the Young Lions Cup for the Fabulous Two, and then he and Mitch Ryder are going to win the Campeones de Parejas. Pretty basic promo, but delivered greatly but young Mr. Hawke.
Hawke starts off by telling Bryce that Bobby pulled his hair, when neither man made a move. Bryce mocked Hawke by telling Bobby to no longer pull his hair. Shayne wants a high five from Bryce, but Bryce fakes out Shayne and slicks his hair back. Bryce, however, gives Bobby a high five leading Mitch (on commentary) to believe he’s biased; we’ll see. Hawke puts a headlock on Bobby. Bobby pushes Shayne to the ropes, but Shayne puts on the break and states “I will not do the tackle thing!” Bobby then pushes Shayne into the ropes, where he once again stops and re-claims his statement. Bobby calls him a chicken so Shayne goes off each of the ropes faking out Bobby. He blows Bobby off and goes to ridicule a fan. Once he turns around, Bobby hits him with a body block. The two men exchange holds with Bobby doing some stuff you wouldn’t expect. Both men come to a stand still and lock up. Bobby pushes Hawke against the ropes, and pokes him in the eye. Hawke tries to throw Bobby off the ropes but gets pushed down instead. Hawke goes to slam Bobby, but Bobby is far too large for Shayne to slam. Bobby takes advantage and hits Hawke with some elbows and a big body slam. He splashes on Hawke for the two count. Bobby attempts a Urinagi slam but Hawke kicks Bobby down to his knees. Hawke comes off the ropes, only to be caught in the Urinagi position once more. Hawke reverses it and hits the Tomahawke on Bobby! Shayne Hawke rolls through into a pin, and pins Bobby for the three count. Shayne Hawke advances to the six way elimination. VERY fun match here; easy to watch and certainly enjoyable. **1/2
Young Lions Cup Qualifier
Johnny Gargano vs. Marshe Rockett
Marshe is backstage with his manager C-Red. C-Red says that the fans that The Soul Touchaz were done, but they’re back. Marshe says he can feel it tonight. C-Red puts on his shades because Marshe was spitting in his face. Marshe says he was doing so because he is so excited, and he is going to prove himself tonight in CHIKARA. C-Red says he and the Soul Touchaz are going back to Chicago Sunday night with a big shiny cup, and they will be singing and dancing in Hellertown tonight. Marshe leaves, and C-Red sings to the camera. Marshe comes back to retrieve C-Red. I LOVE THE SOUL TOUCHAZ!
Marshe and C-Red do the whole “ugonmakemebuymesom” hand shake, only for Gargano to wonder what the heck is going on. Marshe and Gargano get in a cheering battle where each man stands on the second ropes and gets approval from the crowd. Marshe was the clear winner here. When Marshe was standing on the second rope, Gargano ran up from behind and attacked him. Gargano hit a flurry of offense on Marshe, but Marshe worked out of it and dropkicked Gargano to the outside. Gargano walks around, takes a seat, then comes back in at his leisure. Marshe dances off with Gargano, who does the whitest dance moves possible. Gargano and Marshe then do a beautiful sequence of drop downs, reversals, etc. to the delight of the fans. Marshe runs after Gargano in the corner. Gargano catches Marshe’s leg, throws it between the ropes, blasts Marshe with an Enzugiri, then cracks his back with double knees. This was really an excellent way for Gargano to get the advantage. Johnny beat down on Marshe and wore him out with submissions. Marshe would come back every once in awhile, only to be denied by Gargano. Gargano really impressed the crowd with the precision and sleekness of his moves. There was cool sequence where Marshe fought up and tried to get the advantage, but Gargano kicked out his legs and nailed a superkick on him. Gargano continued his domination on Marshe, but never was able to get the pin it seemed. Frustrated, Gargano headed up top. Marshe got to his feet and Gargano launched off the top. To everyone’s shock, Marshe caught Gargano with an Ace Crusher and the win! Marshe is the final man to advance to the six man elimination! This match was excellent; just like Night One the final qualifying match is far and away the best. ***1/4
Lightning Storm (Mike Quackenbush & Shane Storm) vs. The Super Smash Bros. (Player Uno & Stupefied)
We go backstage with Uno and Stupefied arguing over which is better; hot dogs and hamburgers. Uno says that tonight is the re-debut of their quest for three points, and asks Stupefied to speak. Stupefied speaks in French for awhile. Uno says that he was talking about cowboy boots, which has nothing to do with anything. Uno says tonight that Quackenbush and Storm are going to get “pwned”! The Super Smash Bros. go to high five, but miss. This was great.
Stupefied and Quack start off, with them exchanging arm locks and such. Quack seems to get the one up on Stupefied each time, but Stupefied is right there with him. Uno gets tagged in and those two exchange holds. They exchange some leap frogs and other moves, ending with Uno giving Quack the Hadoken. Quack is able to get his arms up in time to block. Quack and Uno shake one another’s hands and tag in their partners. Storm and Stupefied begin to go at it and also exchange holds much like Uno and Quack. Stupefied gets tagged in and Storm knocks Stupefied down, giving Lightning Storm the advantage. Quack is tagged in and takes Stupefied down. Quack begins to stretch Stupefied like a pretzel with a zany lucha submission and a surfboard. As soon as he is able. Stupefied rolls out of the ring. Quack follows him with a tope con helio over the top. Shane and Uno come in as the legal men and immediately get in a face slap battle. Storm gets the mild advantage until Stupefied comes in to help. Stupefied and Uno hit Storm with a double stunner called “Indian Jones and the Temple of Gold.” Stupefied leave his partner and hits a tope con helio on Quack himself. Stupefied then goes up top looking for a drop kick on Storm, but hits Uno instead! Quack comes back in and Lightning Storm begins working over Uno. Stupefied makes the save, and Lightning Storm tries throwing him to the ropes. Instead, Stupefied hits them both with a back flip kick. Uno gets up, but Lightning Storm grabs him, wraps his legs around Stupefied’s head, and throws Uno backwards. This causes Uno to hit a backwards hurricanrana onto his own partner! Storm picks up Stupefied and spins him right into a knee drop. Quackenbush picks up Stupefied and hits him with a gut wrench DDT. Storm sets up as Quack goes up top, and the duo hits the double stomp Air Raid Crash! At this very moment, while Quack is resting in the corner, Tim Donst runs out and whispers something into Quackenbush’s ear. Storm rolls up Stupefied while this is happening, and gets the pin! Lightning Storm has accumulated the three points needed for a shot at the Campeonatos de Parejas. Very good match between two very good teams. ***1/2
Quackenbush stands up as Bryce is raising Shane’s arm in victory. Quack immediately pounces on Storm and starts pounding him on the mat. Bryce tries pulling Quack off of Storm, and Storm rolls out as soon as he can. Storm leaves through the back with Quack trying to claw out of the ring to get Shane Storm. As soon as Storm leaves, Quackenbush sits on the mat and looks up at Donst with an angry look and says “You better be sure.” Quackenbush then lies on the mat grabbing his forehead. He stands up and starts walking as if he is going to the back, but turns around and runs out the exit where Shane Storm left. Tim Donst follows. And here, my friends, is the overlapping storyline for everything that’s going on in CHIKARA today.
The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple (Ultramantis Black & Crossbones) vs. The Soul Touchaz (Acid Jaz & Willie “da Bomb” Richardson)
The Soul Touchaz and C-Red do the whole “ugonmakemebuymesom” hand shake, once again and Hydra tries his own handshake with the Order on the outside. Mantis tells Hydra they don’t need him at ringside, and orders Hydra to attend to Donst in the back. The crowd boos this decision as Hydra hangs his head and slowly walks to the back. Ultramantis and Acid Jaz start off. Jaz puts Mantis in a wrist lock, which Mantis twists into his own. Jaz works his way out of it with a flurry of offense and nails Mantis with a spinning heel kick. Jaz tags in Willie, which causes Mantis to flee to his corner. Mantis tags in the heavyweight horror Crossbones to even up the size difference. Crossbones and Willie go back and forth with chops and strikes. Crossbones throws Willie off the ropes, and Willie leap frogs over Crossbone. Willie comes back with a dropkick much to the delight of the fans. Willie follows up with an elbow off the second rope for the two count. Crossbones rolls out tagging in Mantis. Mantis gets attacked by Willie on the way in. Jaz comes in and Willie throws him up. Jaz lands a rana on Mantis on his way down. Jaz comes off the ropes twice with two leg drops onto Mantis. On his third time off the ropes, Jaz breakdances on the mat into a fist drop onto Mantis! Very cool spot. Jaz tries throwing Mantis into the ropes, but Mantis reverses. Crossbones kicks Jaz in the back as he hits the rope leading to an advantage for the Order. The Order spends a long time keeping Jaz in the ring. Mantis and Crossbones made frequent tags and taking advantage of a distracted official. Mantis and Crossbones stretched Jaz on the mat in addition to wearing him out with strikes and kicks. Jaz was able to turn one of Mantis’ moves into a bridge, but Mantis got right back on him. Jaz got out of the beatdown after reversing a rope throw attempt by Mantis. Jaz stopped it by crushing his knee into Mantis’ face and following up with a nice Enzugiri. Jaz tags in Willie who comes in knocking down both members of the Temple. Willie goes for a move on Mantis only to be countered by a DDT. Crossbones comes crashinig down off the top rope with a splash, but Jaz breaks up the pin. Jaz takes down Crossbones with an X-Factor, then tosses Mantis into a Pounce by Willie Richardson! Willie goes up top to prepare for his big legdrop, but Crossbones crotches him on the top rope. Crossbones then hits a big time suplex on Willie off the top rope while Mantis keeps Jaz busy. Willie rolls out of the ring after the suplex making Acid Jaz the legal man. Jaz tries his best to take out both members. Unfortunately for him, Crossbones catches Acid Jaz with the Friggin’ Sweet Driver for the pin. The Order combo of Mantis and Crossbones now have two points! This was great fun; The Soul Touchaz are far and away some of the best outside talent CHIKARA brings in. ***1/2

This was a great match; not as good as last night’s six way, but still very good. ***3/4
Speaking of Vin Gerard, he comes out and stands on the merchandise table. He tells Fire Ant that the cup is his.
The 411: The night started off not so hot, but by the end of the elimination matches it picked up immensely. While the wrestling tonight may not have been better than Night One, I think this Night moved more fluently and was more enjoyable overall (especially the last five matches). Not to mention that the revelation in the Shane Storm match is such a huge part of CHIKARA's future, that it really is important to see. Recommended!
|Final Score: 7.5 [ Good ] legend|
